Bought a scale; weighed myself. 74 kilos. I was at least 76 and probably more 77/78 to start this so  I'm quite happy! 28 more to go.

And thanks to everyone for commenting!

The pills I got were out the back of a Cleo magazine... I had just been paid and was curious. From here. I ordered the version with oxytum included. How effective will they be? No idea; the science behind them is backed up with studies, but whether the pills actually mimic the studies, who knows?

For instance, oxytum contain magnesium which is associated with weight loss; the 30 Days tablets are meant to get rid of the Fermicute family of bacteria, which again has been studied scientifically. I guess what I'm trying to say is the scientific theory is valid. And they're Norwegian and come with a money back guarantee; I was concerned about how long it took me to receive them and the customer service team replied politely, even if it took them a few days.

I'm actually really enjoying being hydrated again - I was a professional athlete a few years ago and we used to drink so much water, it's great having that feeling again! But thanks for the reminder Cinnamon.

Jenny and Ana, I'll keep you updated.

If you want pills that are proven to work, have a look at Xenical/Orlistat. That will only work when you are consuming food with fat in it, though - what it does is block the enzymes that break down fat, so you can't absorb 25 - 30% of the fat you eat. That means, however, the unabsorbed fat comes out so your bowel motions will be a bit yuck and oily if you eat a lot of fat. Gross.


  1. I like a clever girl, who does her homework! Good job Kat, I know you'll succeed :)

  2. Aww thanks :)

    Also, the firmicute bacteria:obesity thing:

    The 30 days pills have those natural compounds in them.

  3. Great link K ,thanks so much. Keeping the bowel flora happy is so important. Balance is everything, hey?

    I'm all for working smarter, not harder. Thanks for the chat, Babe. You're a star! x.
